SCHOOL READING BY GRADES. FIRST YEAR.








TO THE TEACHER.


THE earlier lessons in this book relate to objects which are famil-
iar to every child and which may be brought into every schoolroom.
The transition from things near and well known to things remote
and strange is gradual and natural, and parallel with the mental
growth of the young learner.
In accordance with the method pursued in the majority of the
best schools, script is introduced at the same time with the Roman
characters. This, besides other advantages, enables the teacher to
make very extensive use of the blackboard in connection with each
lesson from the book.
The lessons are so constructed that, by variations of the different
sentences, each one may be largely supplemented from the blackboard
without the addition of new or unfamiliar words.
The active propensities of the child are constantly recognized, the
majority of the lessons being exercises in doing and observing as well
as in the recognition of words.
Easy and interesting reviews, containing no new words, are given
at regular intervals. Connected with some of these reviews are a
few simple exercises in language which, being largely suggestive, may
be extended and continued at pleasure by the teacher.
Phonetic exercises, or lists of words for drill in the distinct enun-
ciation of separate sounds, are also of frequent occurrence. Diacritical
marks are introduced here, but not elsewhere, as their use in the read-
ing lessons is sure to produce confusion and retard the pupil's progress.
While thus giving due prominence to the phonic idea of teaching,
the collecting of words into unnatural and irrational phrases or ex-
pressions, for the sake of bringing together words or syllables having
a similarity of sound, has been avoided.
In the preparation of the lessons due thought has been given to
the cultivation of a love for the pure, the beautiful, and the good.
Care has been taken to direct the imagination, that important factor
of the child mind, towards the contemplation of things lovely and
inspiring and away from objects that are, at their best, merely gross
and commonplace. This course makes it possible to introduce the
young reader very'early to some of the masterpieces of literature.

one morning in summer.
Then he sat down in it to wait
for a fly. He did not wait long.
Soon a little fly came and sat on a
leaf not far away.
The spider said, "Good morning,
pretty fly! How busy you are!"
The fly said, Good morning, friend
spider! I am as busy as a bee.
But I don't make honey, I sing.
Hear me! Buzz, buzz, buzz!"
The spider said, "What. a pretty song!
Come into my house and sing it."
"I thank you !" said the fly. I can
not stop to-day. Good-bye !"

Come to the pleasant land of play.
Let us play that we are fairies.
i. We are in a meadow. It is a fairy
wood. The grasses are trees.
2. Oh, see the butterflies among the
trees! What big birds they are!
s. Look at the ants, running like
horses along the grassy road!
4. See the spiders, making houses
among the trees!
5. Let us climb a tall grass tree, and
look at the blue sky above us.






Let us come out of the land of play.
Where are we now ? Look around,
and tell me what you can see.

1. We are in school. Here are the
busy children at their desks.
2. Here is my desk, and there is the
door, and there is the window.
a. See the white walls all around us!
4. I see the pictures in the books.
5. I look out of the window, and
see only the roofs of houses.






stay stars still strong
stir stop step storm
The cow will not stay in the meadow;
The stars will not shine in the sky;
The flowers still bloom in the garden,
When the strong west wind goes by.

The leaves stir in the apple trees;
The bees stop in their homes;
The ants step fast among the grass;
They say the storm wind comes.

The ducks like the rain.
They can not fly like larks, but they
can swim.
The little young ducks are as yellow
as buttercups.
They like to swim in the brook.
The old duck swims with them some-
times. Sometimes she waits for
them on the land.
She stands on a stone and calls them.
SShe says, : Quck, quack! Come

buttercups in the grass."

Just then she saw something that
made her stop.
" Oh, Grace Do you see that pretty
little cow ? She is looking at us."
Grace looked up and laughed.
"Oh, Flora! she said. "That is not
a cow. It is a sheep."






But Flora said, It looks like a little
cow. I have heard of sheep, but
I never saw one."
Grace said, "There are a hundred
sheep on that hill."
" Oh, I see!" said Flora. "Look at the
baby sheep jumping in the grass."
Grace said, "We do not call them
baby sheep. We call them
lambs."

flow forever half a-sailing
O little brook, how far you flow,
To find the pleasant river!
You can not stop, you can but go,
And go, and go, forever.
0 moon, a-sailing in the sky,
How far away you are!
But then you are not half so high
As any little star.

Grace and her friends took a long
walk through the woods. By
and by, they came to the river.
They met a big boy who was riding
a white horse.
He was taking care of some cows.
The boy said, When are you going
home, girls ?"
Annie said, We are going home
some time before the sun sets.
Mother told us to come early."
" Are you afraid
to go 1back
through t h
woods '
"Oh, no we
